To the uninitiated, a simple bowl of ramen isn't just a simple bowl of ramen. Japanese cuisine, in general, has a very precise and detailed process of creating their dishes which all are essential to its taste and quality. In Ippudo, one of Japan's ramen houses with branches in the Philippines, the same attention to these details applies to their bowls of ramen and especially to their new 34 hour-braised and torched chashu.

The chashu is the juicy, tender, and flavorful slices of pork belly in your ramen bowl. But what makes Ippudo's new chashu extra special is that it's marinated and braised for 34 hours, resulting in more flavorful meat. As the proverbial cherry on top, this 34 hour-braised chashu is torched for a slightly charred exterior and mild smoky flavor.

You can basically add this special pork slice to any of Ippudo's ramen --  for no extra charge! Either of the Akamaru Special and Karaka Special ramen orders can be topped with a torched 34 hour-braised chashu. However, if you order the Shiromaru Special, the chashu served is only marinated and braised, sans the torching, since it has an extra creamy broth and is best served without the smokiness.

You can also have the torched 34 hour-braised chashu with the Yokohama lekei, a chicken and pork broth ramen, or the Mushroom Ramen, a vegetarian option, to add some actual meatiness to your ramen order. Whichever ramen you're choosing, all are best paired with their best-selling Pork Buns.
